2014 Rookie Patch Reprint Cubs

Today's featured insert, like yesterday's, is made up of reprints of rookie cards.  But these aren't nearly as nice as the framed ones from yesterday.

This set has printed patches instead of solid metal. Even worse, Toops did the exact same thing last year.  It's like they had a bunch of the patches left over and figured they'd just crank out some more this year.

Three Cubs are on the checklist.

Greg Maddux is a first-timer with these.



Ernie Banks and Ryne Sandberg are back for a second time.  At least last year Topps put a little effort into the design of the card. This year....what's with the plain, ugly black and white.

No more rookie patches, please.

  1. I think I prefer last year's version with the entire card being "silk" vs this year's hybrid.
